Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

3 Answers

Razr messaging I have a Cingular/AT&T Razr. The phone is automatically sending MMS instead of plain text messages. It does this when I am the originator of the message as well as when I simply reply to a standard text message. It doesn't do it all the time though and there is no pattern as to when it does so it. What could be causing this?

Re: Razr messaging

For the record, I had the same problem and it was tough searching Google to find a solution. Luckily I found this thread. I emptied my outbox and inbox and no longer have this problem.

Re: Razr messaging

This tends to happen when your inbox/outbox gets too full. I have a razr also and this has happened to me. Try cleaning up older messages. Hope this helps.

Sending all texts as mms instead of sms.

clean up ALL your messages.
For some reason when you are full up on messages instead of telling you it will just start sending MMS instead of SMS messages.
Just got to Menu > Messaging > Options > Cleanup Messages > All
After that, it will start sending SMS again.

Messages > Settings > Text Message > "Send long text as"

If your text is longer than 2 pages, it'll try and send as MMS automatically if you haven't changed it when you had the phone. So if your phone isn't set up for MMS it'll refuse! lol.

Can't text with this cingular razr with a tmobile sim card

Your service center number may be wrong in the phone. Call T-Mobile and ask for the service center number. You should be able to find it in your text messaghing settings. If it is rong (since it varies between carriers) it will stop text messages from going out.
You may also want to try your sim in a tmobbile phone and see if you can send text. Might be a problem on the network, not just with your cingular phone.

Motorola V3 Razr Sending/Receiving pics in text messages

ATT should have looked to see if the internet service is turned off for that particular phone. If thats the case, you shall not send receive pictures. Thats the only the reason you should not be able to send receive pictures.

Call ATT again and ask them that. Sorry to say you might have got the high school dropout rehab person that day.

Phone Sending MMS Messages as Default

The phone allocates a certain amount of storage for messages on a whole. Even though there may still show space available for text messages, you have hit an invisible "limit" and the phone is now defaulting to MMS messages because there is "room" there. Delete a fair amount of messages and you should be able to start sending regular text's again.
